Administrative coordinator

December 15, 2021

Dear Brett,

I’m writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from my role at the University of Urbandale. My last day is December 31, 2021.

I’d like to thank you for the all the mentorship and guidance you’ve given me during my time here. I feel like I was really able to grow as a professional and as a person in this position. While it saddens me to go, I’m happy to know that I’ve gained lifelong friends from my role. The team here is really remarkable, and I’m sad to leave such an incredible group of people.

I plan to turn in my university computer, my office key and my speaker before leaving on the 31st. I have already called the financial services office about canceling my purchasing card and am transferring recurring charges to Makenna’s card number.

I plan to come back and visit as much as I can. It truly has been a pleasure working with everyone. Please keep in touch.

Thank you again for the opportunity,

Tiffany”

I’m writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from Happy Dogs Dog Care Center. My last day is January 7, 2022.

I wanted to personally thank you for hiring me for this role. Working here over the last five years has been one of the happiest times of my life. I’m excited about the next chapter in my career, but I can already say I’ll miss everyone here very much, especially the customers. I’m very grateful for the relationships I’ve built over the last few years.

Please let me know what details you need from me to formalize my departure. I plan to return my uniform and building key.

Again, thank you so much for the opportunity. I look forward to hearing about all the incredible things you do next.

Thank you again for the opportunity,
